3:02am
lot lately. >> i'd go for the oversleeping part. >> you worked over the weekend through this. now, you're going on the road again. first, you have three hours of news to get through. >> that's right. we start with our headlines. two minutes after the hour now. brand new details of a school shooting. they are all safe after a gunman opened fire tuesday. the 800 students at the mcnair academy running for their lives. this is a look at the suspect. a 20-year-old that reportedly slipped through security. now, we hear from the heroic school clerk who talked the shooter down. >> he had a backpack full of ammunitions. he had all the magazines in his backpack. some of them was in his pocket. i had him to empty everything, put the gun on the table, take his wallet off, everything and told him to lay on the floor and i told police he was giving
3:03am
himself up and i just talked him through it. >> what a brave woman. hundreds of parents eager to be reunited with their kids at a nearby wal-mart as school buses pulled up. tears began to flow. he's charged with aggravated assault on a police officer and terrif terroristic threats by a convicted felon. and this happened in mid-down manhattan and dr. oz who has an office nearby and two other men rushed in to help a woman who lost her foot. it happened close to fox and fashioned a tourniquet for her leg before paramedics got here. >> there was a dog leash and belt. two mundane things you wouldn't think of and they saved her life for the two of them to stop the bleeding because you don't have much time. >> the 23-year-old remains in the hospital in critical condition. as for the man behind the wheel,
3:04am
police gave him a summons because he was unauthorized to drive that cab. in extreme weather alert, while you were sleeping, a destructive wildfire on the outskirts of theo simty national park the yosemite national park. about 200 senior citizens were evacuated from a nearby camp. the cause of the fire was under investigation. fire-fighting costs around the country are reaching a billion dollars now. a high school in georgia made artwork that says "god is dead" to hang on its walls. this morning, a big victory by people of faith and it has been pulled down now. >> it seems to me if the school is going to say we do not have religion in school, we do not have it through the academic part of things, if you're not going to teach god and not going to teach the good of god, i
3:05am
don't believe you should be blastering god is dead, satan lives, there's no heaven, there's only hell, it doesn't sound like a very positive thing for kids to come in and see. >> the school had defended the artwork as being inspired by the play "the crucible." the question is why would they keep that up for a period of time and not have a any -- although they did have, in god we trust at one place in the school. nonetheless they did the right thing. five minutes after the top of the hour. >> you talk about random, you're a young baseball player, decide to go visit your girlfriend, you're from australia, 22 years old, you know what, i should probably go for a run. you would think that's a benign activity by somebody in oklahoma and that activity ends with you sweating and taking a shower. something happened in between. >> id did indeed.
3:06am
you're looking at a picture of chris lane, goes to school in oklahoma. you're right. he had been visiting his girlfriend in dunkin, oklahoma. what happened was he went jogging and he was out, just down the street and three young men who were sitting outside a house saw him jog by and said, let's go after him. and they followed him. those young men. they shot him in his back with a .22. it was completely random. he is dead. >> 15-year-old james francis edwards junior and 16-year-old luna, the one who allegedly pulled the trigger on this poor guy here, .22 caliber revolver both in jail with no bond and the alleged driver, michael jones, 17 years old in jail on a million dollars bond. what we're hearing one of them posted on their facebook page, bang. two hours and two drops. what's happening there is, you know, could there have been more?
3:07am
in fact, a prosecutor in the courtroom called them thugs and said they may have been on a killing spree and we could have had more dead bodies if they hadn't been apprehended. >> listen to this. the reason, we were bored and decided to kill somebody, what they evidently told police. >> apparently 15-year-old james edwards junior danced and laughed as he was taken to the police department, the young man far screen left. it's mr. luna we believe is the suspect in actually pulling the trigger. a allen west has a good question. it was post ed he tweeted this. quote, we were bored and decided to kill someone, three black teens shoot white jogger. who will president of the united states identify with this time? >> there were a lot of people tweeting about this including the guy on the facebook page him holding a gun.
3:08am
laura ingram says will they comment three teens charged with first-degree murder? how many times did we hear trayvon was shot for walking while black and this teen wyoun was shot while jogging. >> there's jesse jackson screen left, al sharpton screen right. we haven't heard anything from them yet. will we? we should. wouldn't you agree? e-mail us, friends@foxnews.com. on the internet, "wall street journal" brand new report today revealing almost every click you make on the web while the spy agency is there. to the tune of maybe 75%. live in washington with the latest, hey, elizabeth. >> good morning, guys. you're right. watch where you click or what you write in your next e-mail. the "wall street journal" publishing a report that paints a picture of a much more
3:09am
expansive network at the national security agency. how big are we talking? the capacity to have access to three-fourths of all web traffic. the goal of the program is to capture suspicious information that could be on the web, designed to look for communications that either originate in or and abroad. in that very broad attempt, they could be picking up your web mail traffic. the former top intelligence officials quoted in the article said it's a very complex filter that takes place at major internet junctions within the u.s. the fact the government has access to track the activity in the first place does make a lot of people very uneasy. take a listen. >> one of the problems with the nsa's talking points is that the nsa has, for a very long time, used word games, when it describes authorities publicly. those word games are based upon very strange and unordinary definitions the nsa assigned to some of the words that they use
3:10am
to defend their programs. >> in the "wall street journal's" report, the nsa does defend its practices. a spokeswoman says it's a very legal and respectful of americans' privacy. i she writes if americans communications are inadvertently collected during the process they use minimization procedures approved by the attorney general and used to protect the privacy of united states persons. you learned last week we did learn the nsa breached privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times. >> new revelations. >> i wouldn't be surprised if people weren't watching us right now. >> i don't think anybody's watching. well, let's see, until sinbad gets out here who's in this building. did you know a-rod was
3:11am
suspended by baseball for 211 games and said i'm lawyering up and by the time the appeal happens the season will be done and his colleagues and perhaps some in the yankee front office and teammates saying wait a second, why does he get to play through this entire thing, basically everybody knows he's guilty. it is true everybody built this in the process. they're upset the yankees getting back into this thing, the guy seems to be clear and overwhelming evidence is still playing. sunday night we know the reason most of us were up late, a classic game between yankees and red sox. ryan dempster threw the ball at him and the last time he hit him, they suspended dempster for just five games, with a few off in between he does not miss a single start for throwing at a player. does that seem fair? >> doesn't everybody know a-rod is guilty? a-rod has already apologized to
3:12am
his own teammates. a-rod is playing while ryan dempster is out. >> usa with a report today exclusively on the table for major league baseball to put an end to the chicanery and circus has 150 game offer on the table. take the suspension. 60 games less than we gave you and let's call it a day. instead, he's got joe tacopina, known famous for representing some mobsters. he is out there -- >> a prominent new york attorney. >> joe tacopino saying he will sue major league baseball and the yankees for misdiagnosing his hip injury and going on the offensive. this is the story for november. >> is this a black eye for the yankees, too? new york is fed up with a-rod. >> he's at war with yankees, yankees are at war with their player.
3:13am
major league baseball is at war with their player. meantime he's playing and doing well and yankees are back in the playoff hunt. it is george steinbrenneresque and back in the playoff hunt. >> and a lot of money on the table. >> yankees use it on other people. >> on this wednesday, straight ahead, coming up, an accused terrorist involved in september 11th now having a meal meltdown in court. why he's demanding certain condime condiments. will we give them to him? the latest on that. ding-dong, at your front door, obamacare, are they snooping on you? what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. backflips and camm, ok!s. ching! i like the fact that there's lots of different tastes going on. mmmm! breakfast i'm very impressed.

4:03am
an exclusive report in the "wall street journal" reporting the nsa can access 75% of internet traffic. according to the report, the agency filters traffic at more than a dozen places and in conjunction, companies. you may remember last week the nsa breached privacy rules thousands of times each year. the nsa, though, says the program is legal. today private first class bradley manning will learn his fate. in less than three hours, a judge will announce his sentencing for leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents to wikileaks. prosecutors are pushing for a 60-year sentence. manning's lawyers say that's too harsh and the judge shouldn't, quote, rob him of his youth. 259-year-old soldier was -- 25-year-old soldier was convicted last month. do you have a sneaking suspicion that you're turning into your mother or father? a new poll out revealing your right. the age we become our parents? just 32 years old. here is the reason for it.
4:04am
more than half surveyed said they already had their own children by that age and that changed everything for them. that means now they suffer from lack of sleep, complain about things way too much and how much everything costs and have no free time. so e-mail us. what do you think. at what age did you become your parents or say, i'm never going to? >> brian: i want details. what are your parents doing that you're doing. >> steve: i remember exactly, 'cause i was like that hypothetical person, i'll never become my parents. i remember the first time one of my kids ran in the street, when i yelled at that person, sounded just look my dad. >> brian: one thing i never used and my mom always used, i'm going to brain you. i never use that. i just remember that. >> steve: hit you in the head? >> brian: i'm not sure. >> steve: or make you smarter. >> brian: me and my brothers, we would go to schwinn and buy helmets. i'm not sure. this is such a disturbing story that we're discussing and i cannot believe this is one of those movies that you hope not to see.
4:05am
in oklahoma, a 22-year-old college student named chris lane visits his girlfriend. he decides to go for a jog after. australian, it turns out he randomly gets shot in the back by three teens. there at the time, 15-year-old, 16, 17. the reason will infuriate you. >> anna: basically they just said, we were bored and that's why we did it. they admitted to it, but these are allegations still, innocent until proven guilty. but 15-year-old, 16-year-old who allegedly pulled the trigger of the .22 caliber revolver, in jail with no bond. and 17-year-old michael jones, allegedly the driver and in jail on a million dollars bond. >> steve: extraordinary. that kid from australia was running down the road jogging after he visited his girlfriend. they run by the house where these three thugs is what the
4:06am
prosecutor called the young man in court. runs by them, they say, let's go kill him. they went out and they did just that. >> brian: right now let's go to jesse jackson and al sharpton. >> steve: the live shot? >> brian: every time something like this happens, they always weigh in. so let's go to them. >> anna: oh, wait, we don't have it. why not? because they haven't come forward and said anything. are they going to? will they? should they? >> steve: we heard a lot f them during the trayvon martin situation. allen west tweeted, quote, we were bored and decided to kill somebody. three black teens shoot white jogger. who will president of the united states identify with this time? excellent point. i wonder when celebrities are going to put on i am chris lane t-shirts? >> brian: like jamie fox? >> steve: exactly. you think that stuff is going to happen? e-mail us or is there once
4:07am
again, as we have talked about many times, a double standard regarding things like this? >> brian: there was an arbitration report after the benghazi hit on 9-11-2012. they found out that it did not go to the upper echelon when is it turns out responsibility of the investigation of who was wrong, who dropped the ball, who did not act to save our guys that were in the fight for their life, four of which would lose that fight and who was responsible for not having security there and not initiating a response. when it came, they focused on the state department. it wasn't the secretary of state. it wasn't the undersecretary. it was four mid level employees there. they were told, listen, we find you're responsible. this is a arbitration report put together by admiral mullen and thomas pickering. these are the four that were told hand in your badges. don't come to work. this is the report everyone refers to as the template from what went wrong and anybody there who hears clear of this report is going out for pure
4:08am
politics. >> steve: so those four were placed on administrative leave. hillary clinton said at the time, if i could fire them, i would fire them. well, now fast forward to john kerry, secretary of state. he yesterday said, okay. you know what? you didn't do anything wrong. come on back. get your job. isn't that convenient? a lot of people feel that they were scapegoats. victoria toensing will join us. here is trey gowdy talking about what happened at the department of state is simply to help hillary clinton become our next president. >> i think it would be more accurate to call the accountability review board's work the hillary for president board because near as i can tell, the only thing they tried to do is insulate her from any criticism whatsoever. there has been no accountability. >> steve: so the only four people who lost their jobs were the four people who were murdered in benghazi. now darrell issa, house
4:09am
oversight committee, pledges an investigation to figure out exactly who is responsible. somebody's got to be responsible. >> anna: somebody's got to be responsible and a lot of critics are wondering where the accountability is in this and was this a charade to make it seem like the obama administration was really taking this thing seriously, instead, waited for it to blow over and waited for one secretary of state to come in for another, and now john kerry, it's on his watch. so definitely we'll be continuing to watch this. >> brian: thomas pickering, a former ambassador, he said, quote, we fixed responsibility at the assistant secretary level, which in our view, was the appropriate place to look. with the decision making -- where the decision making takes place. if you like the rubber hits the road. john kerry said i looked at this and i don't find them culpable. so what is right? is the report right or is john kerry right? they both cannot be right.
4:10am
>> steve: the report is a white wash and you know what? all they're doing is spinning for hillary. you talk to sean smith's mother, she says watch out. here she is, pat smith. watch out for hillary. >> i still see pictures on that tv of bloody fingerprints on the wall thinking, are those my son's? people of the united states, hillary doesn't give a damn about you! what can i do? what can i do on this? i'm just at a loss for words. i want to know what happened, why my son is dead, who ordered that, and i don't want it to happen again to other people. >> anna: these are real people with real lives who lost their lives and their family members are still surviving, having to deal with the aftermath and going to bed at night not knowing what happened. terrible. >> steve: it is. it's now 7:11 in new york city. 7-11, good place to get a job. come to think of it, why get a job, because in 35 states, you
4:11am
can actually make more money if you're on welfare because in addition to state welfare, there are also something like 126 different programs where you can get money. take a look. 35 states where you can make more money on welfare than working. take a look. if you are lucky enough to live in the state of hawaii where the minimum wage is 7.25, through all the welfare programs, you can actually draw 29.13 an hour on welfare. dc, 24. massachusetts, 24. connecticut, 21 bucks an hour. why work? >> brian: i thought we reformed welfare. if the crew listens to the show, and we don't know if they do, they might leave because they're getting paid more than most of the people in the studio. this is incredible! 13 states welfare pays more than $15 an hour. that's absolutely crazy. at a time in which states are
4:12am
squeezing their budgets dry. herman cain, who knows what it is like to work on greta. >> the poor are worse off under this administration based upon just one statistic, the number of people that are now on food stamps and the number of people that have gone on food stamps in the last four years is twice the number of new jobs that are being created. >> steve: coincidence? probably not. cato institute suggests if you're serious about reducing welfare dependentence, reward work and strengthen the work requirements, remove the exemptions and narrow the definition of work. right now it's too broad. remember, go out and get a massage, that would count. >> brian: by the way, cato, a wonderful partner if you're fighting crime. am i right? the man who helped ed snowden expose the nsa now a government target. our radio all stars are first time ever assembled here to

4:17am
guardian to destroy all of its nsa files. so is this what happens when you expose government wrongdoings or were they actually taking illegal documents across from one country to the next? joining us now for the first time ever assembled, fox news talk radio all stars playing the role of john gibson, john gibson. allen colmes and tom sullivan playing wide left. >> welcome to liberal in the middle. >> brian: let's tackle the first topic. john gibson, glenn greenwald, who worked with -- we know he worked with snowden to expose all that information that he stole now gets his partner detained and this guy got some equipment taken away and some dvd's and cd's. >> if greenwald wanted to smuggle the information from berlin to rio, which was the way this deal was working, he should have, as a good investigative journalist, figured out his partner would get caught and not fly through london. if you're smuggling this
4:18am
material around, the brits may grab it. so i don't feel the least bit sorry for him. by the way, since snowden has become a russian rock star -- stooge, i'm not so sure i like any of these guys anymore. i was glad to hear what they're doing. i was glad to find out. but they have compromised themselves. >> brian: he's taking his information that he got from snowden, he's making a profit off of it. >> we don't know if there is profit being made. tell me, what piece of information came out that's been so danieling? can you name anything? i don't know what it was. >> i'm with alan. what national security secret was leaked other than the fact they're spying on you? >> brian: absolutely. >> that's the whole point. >> brian: the obama administration, as we move on, has missed about half of its obamacare legally imposed information deadlines. this is a big unwielding mess. even the obama administration who wrote it can't implement it.
4:19am
>> not true. number one, thanks for trying. but look, the fact is -- >> brian: get it done! >> nine of those incidents where they haven't funded it is because congress did not fund nine of those things. the other issue is i.t. issues where contractors -- you know how contractors work, didn't get it done. >> you can't defend this! >> the key part of the law is being implemented. >> i'll tell you something, the republicans are making a huge mistake. they need to back away from this thing and let it ride. let it ride and say -- >> i don't understand exactly why this big defund effort is going on when it appears to be collapsing of its own weight. >> exactly. let it fall down and let the ruins gather around. >> they tried 40 times. the 41st time is a charm. >> brian: they only tried five times. meanwhile, this ugly scene, it's hard to believe this is happening in this country. but three teens gunned down a
4:20am
22-year-old baseball player who after visiting with his girlfriend, just wanted to go for a run in oklahoma. he's out of australia. what do you have to say about this? three black teens shoot a white baseball player and where is al sharpton? >> come on, this wasn't about race obviously. they were bored. >> brian: they said they were bored. >> they were bored, that's all it was. had nothing to do with black or white. >> there is no evidence it's about race. when -- >> it's normally because they're asked to come in. they don't just -- they're not ambulance chasers. they're asked to come in by families because african-americans are underrepresented in our government. they don't have advocates. so it's good you have people like jackson and sharpton to do that. >> sharpton can't raise money on this. >> brian: if you've enjoyed this at all and i know you have and learned a lot, you can get more, first time ever. all star summit between 12 and 2

>> steve: time for news by the numbers. first, $184 million. that's how much tsa screening equipment collecting dust in a warehouse is worth. next, more than $681,000. that's how much the air forceent men look stronger when they're carrying a gun. didn't we know that? 890,000. that's the not so impresssive number of people who watched oprah winfrey's interview with lindsay lohan. more than 3 million watched her
4:25am
interview with lance armstrong. that was a big number. over to you. >> anna: the prosecution has rested its case against major nidal hasan and today the accused shooter in the fort hood massacre may take the stand when court begins in about three hours. kriv reporter ford atkinson is live in fort hood, texas with more. good morning. >> good morning to you. this may be a day of historic proportions if we hear from nidal hasan. on the other hand, this could turn out to be essentially a nonevent. he does take up his own defense today, as you indicated. the prosecution rested yesterday. but hasan has told the judge that he is not going to call any witnesses. the judge has told him if you're going to say anything, you're going to have to say it from the witness stand. you're not going to be able to make statements. you're not going to be able to make speeches. you're literally going to have to get on the witness stand, ask yourselves questions and provide
4:26am
the answers. of course, those answers would be subject to cross-examination by the prosecutors. so it is really unclear what, if any, defense nidal hasan is going to put up today, assuming he is convicted, i don't think there is anybody on earth who doesn't think he won't be convicted. then during the sentencing phase, that is when the judge has offered him and the prosecution some leeway into talking about motive, in which case he might go into his philosophy. but right now it appears his defense today will be very short, perhaps he will rest immediately. we simply do not know. back to you. >> steve: all right. thank you very much. keep in mind, mr. hasan, who is acting as his own attorney, has previously referred to himself as a mujuhadin and switched sides. yet the judge in the case, judge
4:27am
colonel osborne, is now banning any evidence that would prove that he had jihadi motives. >> brian: that really screws up not only one thing, his incredibly unthinkable that that would be okay, that of course was no reference to al-qaeda when he said i am from al-qaeda, that's what i'm fighting for and i want to be put to death and become a martyr, yelled allah akbar before he started the shooting. now this also messes up the men and women who have taken the bullets and who survived because this is workplace violence. they don't get purple hearts. they don't get combat pay. they don't get disability. they can sue civilly, effectively, because workplace violence is a whole new category as opposed to victim of terror. >> steve: but they've already filed a suit in civil court against this guy to claim what he did was terrorism. they would get all that stuff that you were talking about. they'd wind up with purple hearts, with commendations and
4:28am
also higher benefits. but instead, look at the evidence that the judge will not allow. >> anna: yeah. part of that is e-mails between major nidal hasan back in 2008, i believe, with anwar al-awlaki, who is known for recruiting people to al-qaeda like this. the judge is saying he's not wanting to do this -- the judge is saying that this should not be allowed in because it would be a distraction as well. and critics are going, are they just concerned that there could possibly be an appeal? is that some sort of justification for why this could be done, because the family members are outraged about it. >> steve: we're outraged about it. >> brian: absolutely. here we are, coming up to the bottom of the hour. when we told but the dangers of lead in lipstick, that's not the only beauty product that should have you worried. what you need to know next.

4:56am
that's my question. you're normal. and you know why you're a good mom? because your kids get to see you not only taking care of them, but fulfilling your passion. if you didn't do it, you might well be depressed. so there is really no option here. you can't fake it. i'm sure you're not neglecting your kids. you're following your passion, too. they get to see their mother do that. good for you. normal. don't come see me. >> steve: very good. you're the doctor, but do you have a sore throat today? you sound a little scratchy. >> listen, i like to say that when i'm at 80%, i'm as good as most psychiatrists at 100%. what, i should have canceled? >> steve: no, no. you came to play. dedication. he's chewing us out now. >> you don't love me anymore. >> steve: we love you. >> okay. thank you. >> i do have a scratchy throat. i will take care of myself. >> steve: thank you, dr. cranky. >> you're welcome. >> steve: coming up, before you

>> steve: all right. it's about five minutes after the top of the hour. here is the hot topic all across america. we're going to put up a picture of 22-year-old chris lane, an australian playing baseball down in oklahoma. that is him. he is dead. he was murdered by three teen-agers down in oklahoma because they were bored. they randomly picked him and tracked him down and killed him for the fun of it. extraordinarily, james francis edwards junior, one of the fellows who you just saw in the mug shot, screen left, apparently, you know what that guy did? he danced and laughed as he was carted off to the police department. >> brian: they're all charged. they'll be prosecuted as adults, it seems. and why shouldn't they be? evidently there could be somebody else killed because on facebook, one of these guys posted a something that said, two drops in two hours. so there might be somebody else who was shot. as far as christopher lane,
5:06am
22-year-old, white guy shot by three black teens, arbitrarily, why was he shot? that didn't stop jesse jackson and president obama and al sharpton from weighing in. >> anna: we're still waiting. >> brian: that's all -- it isn't in yet? wait a second. maybe they're not weighing in. >> steve: you mean where is the al sharpton rally? he's so good at starting rallies for people. >> brian: like duke lacrosse nonrape story. >> steve: absolutely. so what do you get? wind up with crickets right now. we do also have -- brian you mentioned the facebook of one of the young men charged with this guy's murder. we also have an image from a vine video where apparently one of the suspects is handling a gun on camera with a big smile. there he is. that's james edwards, junior, 15 years old. >> anna: this happened east
5:07am
central university. the australian guy, if we can show his picture, he had gone out for a run. he had been visiting his girlfriend, he was from australia on a baseball scholarship there in duncan, oklahoma. his family is missing him this morning. >> brian: eastern central university. feel bad, especially all the way here from australia. fox news talk radio all stars were just here. they have differing opinions on this. they weighed in on the story that we've been leading with all day. >> this wasn't about race obviously. they were bored! they were bored. that's all it was. had nothing to do with black or white. >> there is no evidence it's about race. when -- >> other than the -- >> it's normally because they're asked to come in. they don't just -- they're not ambulance chasers. they're asked to come in by families because african-americans are underrepresented in our government. they don't have advocates, so it's good you have people like jackson and sharpton to do that.
5:08am
>> sharpton can't raise money on this. >> steve: good comment by mr. sullivan. allen west tweeted this: we were bored and decided to kill somebody. that's a quotation from these guys. three black teen-agers shoot a white jogger. who will president of the united states identify with this time? once again, probably crickets. >> anna: the disrespect for life, where does this come from? what is our society coming to when kids will do this because they're bored? i hate to even accuse video games of anything either in all of this, but we just heard -- and keith ablow, one of our e-mails is that their child is playing video games for ten hours a day, what do you think that does to your child's head when they're shooting people for ten hours a day? might lead to something like this. >> steve: where are the parents? meanwhile, almost every click you make on your computer and your smart phone, the nsa is watching you. a shocking new report revealing even more troubling information about the spy agency. elizabeth prann live in dc with
5:09am
the very latest. they're watching us. >> yes. good morning. you may be surprised to hear the scope of the surveillance network at the nsa. according to the "wall street journal," the agency has the capacity to access three fourths of all u.s. web traffic. the programs were all designed to capture suspicious information activity on the web, specifically communication that either originates or ends abroad, but in doing that, because this program is so vast, the nsa could be picking up your e-mails and your web trail. a former top intelligence official quoted in the article says, it's a very complex filter system that takes place at dozens of major internet junctions within the u.s. but critics of the program say any dragnet surveillance or mass data collection is poisonous to the freedoms of americans. >> for example, when they use the word collect, they don't mean what you and me might
5:10am
ordinarily use that word to mean, which is that the physical acquisition of information. the nsa thinks of collection as being the later review of that information. and to them, acquisition at the front end is very different from having an analyst review it. that's when the collection takes place. >> two sides to every story. in the published report, the nsa defends its practices saying in part, the program is legal and respectful of americans' privacy. the agency also writes, if american communications are collected, there are, quote, minimummization techniques approved by the u.s. attorney general to protect the privacy of united states persons. but remember, just last week an internal nsa audit showed the agency did breach privacy rules while storing unauthorized communication knoxs of times over and for years. brian, steve, anna, back to you. >> steve: all right. thank you very much. that's right. the government just trust us, we're not doing anything wrong. really?
5:11am
well, talking about transparency, you know with the irs scandal where lois lerner apologized that the irs was spying on conservative and tea party groups and freedom groups and patriot groups, she apologized -- of course, she's still drawing her government salary. as it turns out, when asked for the irs to go ahead and turn over -- it was supposed to be mid-level people in cincinnati. it was much wider. let's see the training materials. the irs will not release them. karl rove knows why. here is what he said. >> the fact that the irs refuses to give them these training materials is a sign -- the training materials showing how a nonprofit application will be accepted or won't be accepted. i mean, this is a cover-up. there is no ifs ands or buts about it. >> brian: we're not getting to the bottom of it. i'm not sure -- i know they're on vacation now, but where is the pace of this investigation in people are losing their attention because it stops.
5:12am
it gets heated, then goes away. >> anna: the group that's doing this is a nonprofit group called tax analysts and they've actually won a lot of lawsuits against the government under the freedom of information act since 1985. they've filed suits 15 times. maybe they'll have a little better luck than we've had to getting to the bottom of this. i don't know if we should bank on that either. >> steve: no kidding. here is something else we need to get to the bottom of. coming up, disturbing details on the benghazi investigation and one of the victims' mothers has a message for americans. >> people of the united states, hillary doesn't give a damn about you! >> steve: more from sean smith's mom coming up. >> brian: then have you ever told your parents, i'll never do that to my kids? it turns out you are wrong. science has pinpointed the exact age you turn into your mom or your dad. e-mail us with your stories before we reveal the science behind it.

5:17am
to work. we're going to reassign you, but you did nothing wrong. these people were scapegoats, weren't they? >> four framed employees, i call them. they were put on administrative leave, if you remember, as a result of the arv report, the accountability review report headed by tom pickering and admiral mullen. if you remember the white house touted it as being unsparing and rigorous. well, it was neither, steve. it was a corrupt cover-up to protect hillary clinton and why was it corrupt? because they were not thorough. there are all kinds of people they didn't interview. they made false statements and framed four state department employees to take the blame away from the higher ups. they did not interview hillary. they did not interview her top deputy for security, pat kennedy. now, those are the two people that made the major security decisions. can i give you an example of the security issue and how the irb
5:18am
did this? it is undisputed that ambassador kratz asked for increased security. chris stevens asked for it when he took over in june. my client, greg hicks, asked for more security beforee left to go over there because of conditions on the ground. and guess what the arp report said? the pickering cover-up, tripoli did not ask strongly enough for increased security, but two paragraphs later in order to frame the four employees, you know what the same report says? security was inadequate despite repeated requests from the embassy for increased security. you can't make this up. >> steve: and you as well feel look, this arb was headed by mullens and pickering. they're not investigators. rather than record the people, they had a note taker. then for instance, your client was not allowed to review the secret report and so -- by the

5:20am
scapegoats. >> and what does it matter, steve, huh? what does it matter? do you remember when hillary was so adamant in a hearing and said that unsatisfactory leadership is not a cause for people being fired and i'm really sorry about that and let's get new legislation to do that? now these people are being brought back. let me tell you something, they're being brought back because there was no evidence against them and kerry had to deal with the aftermath. what was he going to do? but i can assure you, and nobody has told you what position they have right now, right? nobody knows. they're not going to the equivalent of what they had when they left, but they brought them back in, so they couldn't fire them because they couldn't fire them, hoping that bringing them back will silence them and they will not talk about it. >> steve: somebody who knows more than just about anybody about this topic, victoria toensing, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, an intern drops dead and doctors say it's from pulling an all nighter at work. actually maybe three all

thing isn't necessarily smart 'cause that's his end goal, is to kill you. the grizzly bear, they have a thing where they do like a defense attack. you scare the bear. you might be between -- >> brian: you walk in on the bear. >> like i don't like you. you're making me nervous. i'm going to swat you down. if you're in that kind of attack, and these things are difficult to assess obviously in a real situation. in that kind of attack, it's advantageous to play dead. if you're like this, protect the back of your head and neck and hope that she's just trying to neutralize that threat and when she's done, she will leave. >> brian: when do you realize the playing dead is not going well? >> steve: when they're chewing on you. >> anyone in these situations, making the real time calls. if you feel this is not ending, i'm getting bit, this is not working, if you're able to think clearly still, i would think punching the bear in the muzzle. punching the nose. it's most irritating. >> brian: just pop them. trash talk them.
5:28am
and tell them there is more where that came from. >> steve: one of the problems a lot of people in my neighborhood have, we have a lot of black bears going through the trash. so just let them go through the trash, right? don't try to run them off? >> that's what most people would recommend. that's what i would recommend. i'm often in situations where i'll be camping and hunting and we might have meat from hunts and that will draw in bears. in those case, we'll typically run them off by doing what i was showing you, by being loud, arms up, coming at them. >> steve: wooden spoon on a pot. >> brian: they say pepper spray is good, mace? >> they have done an analysis on all bear attacks on humans. it seems as though pepper spray -- >> brian: there you are. >> there is my signature move. it seems as though pepper spray is more effective than a firearm. >> steve: good. >> it's easy to use. if you're carrying it on your belt. it's easy to use and the other thing is if you make a mistake with pepper spray, it's not

a new poll is revealing that you're right. the age we become our parents, just 32 years old. so here is the reason. more than half surveys said they already had their own children by that age and that changed everything for them. that means they don't suffer from lack of sleep and complain about how much things cost and have no free time. >> steve: so here is what some of you had to say. bill said, i remember it was like it was yesterday, i was 40ish. i shouted to my daughter, what is that noise! turn down that noise! you call that music? yep. bill, you became your dad. >> brian: karen said this, i think it happened for me when i first said, quit running with the scissors. you'll poke your eye out with that. i like statistics on how often that really happened. that's true. how many people poked their eyes out with scissors. >> steve: many warned. >> anna: kyle from texas said, as a teen i remember justifying to my parents why i wanted to go to my friend's party by saying that everybody is going. to which my mom and dad would reply, you're not everybody. move forward a few years and

there is my teenage son asking the same question before i could stop myself, i respond with, you're not everybody. you know something? mom was right. >> steve: what goes around comes around. >> brian: here is the thing, it might turn out your parents are right and later in life you become right. >> steve: that's kind of what will rogers said once upon a time. >> brian: whatever happened to him? >> steve: he's got a statue in oklahoma. >> brian: he passed away? >> steve: yes. all right. meanwhile, we've been talking about obamacare. we know it was supposed to bring down the cost curve. but we know in reality it's turned the cost curve the wrong direction. the affordable care act unaffordable. now there is news that a big company where the wardrobe is brown is not going to insure spouses of many employees if they actually can get their health care elsewhere. in other words, if some of the spouses for ups employees work for another company and has health care elsewhere, they better take it 'cause they're getting cut off by ups.
5:39am
>> anna: this company is so well-known for taking care of their employees. that's one of the reasons people want to work there is because of the incredible benefits. they don't get doors. but anyway, there is a reason for all this. rising medical costs. here is what the memo from ups said. combined with the cost associated with the affordable care act have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care to benefits to our employees at an affordable cost. so we've heard a lot about businesses hiring a lot of part-time workers, which makes -- when we're adding jobs, it makes it seem like there is more, but it's part-time. they're keeping them at just under 30 hours. we've heard about that. but this seems wild. the way the health care law is written, you have to cover employees and their dependent children. but spouses aren't included. >> brian: it seems like the law is a disaster and nothing is working. so many delays and deadlines are

5:47am
does take the stand and he starts talking about jihad and his role in this -- what his role in the world is, then he really opens the door and the prosecution, the government in this case, the army, will be allowed to cross-examine him on what he talked about and i'm sure that this guy is going to talk about jihad. so she wanted to try to preserve the record as much as possible when the army was presenting their case in chief. but when he takes the stand, i guarantee you all bets are going to be off. >> brian: it's unbelievable because i feel bad for the victims especially. number one, they're victims and they're survivors because this is workplace violence that affects their payout and benefits and affects the fact they don't get purple hearts. so all this plays into it. workplace violence, don't bring up jihad. don't bring up the fact that he wants to be considered a terrorist. it defies logic to think you're open to appeal! >> well, the government has been overly politically correct, i think, from the beginning. we suspected some members from
5:48am
the fort hood area and myself suspected that this possibly could happen. so we introduced legislation that said, look, fine, army, if you don't want to call this an act of terror. if you want to call it workplace violence, great. that we disagree with that. but at least the victims should be treated as if it were an act of terrorism and they should be able to get the benefits that they need and deserve with this guy who is clearly a participant in the war on terror, so much so that the guy he was communicating with we thought was bad enough that we put to death. >> brian: it's going to affect the civil case. when you have a criminal case that is devoid of this issue, then you try bring that up civilly, you're going to have a hard time getting traction, which again affects the victims. >> that's true. i mean, you're absolutely right, brian. when we simplify things in the court marshal system, it's to try to preserve the record so there is less things that can be
5:49am
appealed. but at the same time, we're also limiting what we've learned and what we've garnered from that criminal case. but again, i get back to the thing, i think that he is going to want to be on display and show his bonafides as a true jihaddist and plus this is relevant i think in sentencing when you're talking about what was going on in his mind, what was he thinking, any first-year law student will tell you that you have to have an act and the depraved heart, which is why i think it should be part of the progression's case. it's got to come out in sentencing. i think it will come out in his case here shortly anyway. >> brian: congressman, you deserve credit. you and others are getting together legislation that would have the government classify this incident in a way in which it's going to benefit the victims. thank you very much for joining us. we look forward to the. >> thanks for staying on top of this. >> brian: coming up, having your first child scary enough.
